The Resilient Pastor
How to Remain Effective and Finish Well in Ministry
Tough Times call for Strong Pastors!
Ministry is getting harder. Burnout, discouragement, and sinful collapses are destroying the lives of pastors and damaging churches. And relief won’t come from the culture: national surveys show that an alarming number of people are falling away from the faith or dismissing it as irrelevant. What are people in ministry supposed to do?
If the work won’t be easier, pastors must become more resilient.
Drawing on Scripture, timeless pastoral wisdom, the study of human resilience, and training developed for first responders, this book identifies the traits that make Christian workers resilient. It teaches them habits that will help them grow strong, peaceful, and joyful. Best of all, each reader will be left with a personalized plan to become more effective, enjoy ministry more, and finish their course well.
